Romanian Peter Szabo invested some 4,500 hours to build his love car Julia The Woodroadster, which he named after his wife, and put in around $20,000 for her hard ash wood frame.
Julia is a combination of retro lines and old-school roar of a typical automobile with modern addition like the tablet-controlled headlights and music.
The vehicle is outfitted with modified Mercedes-Benz seats and under its electronically regulated hood is the Taunus V6 2.3-liter engine.
Completing the wooden vehicle project was nearly impossible because according to Peter, the hardwood used to build the car is of high quality and is hard to find.
But he likes challenges, and three years after he started building it, he was satisfied and happy with the end result.
